Abstract

This paper presents a comparison study between plain conventional concrete with confinement effect of concrete filled PVC column. PVC tubes with thickness of 3.7mm and 5.4mm of 160mm outside diameter were used for the experiment. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC or Vinyl) is an economical and versatile thermoplastic polymer widely used in building and construction industries. The strength, stiffness ductility and long term performance of concrete members can be increased through PVC confinement effect. PVC confined concrete column is effective in load carrying capacity and also it can be used as an alternative for high economy steel columns. Test result indicated that compressive strength of PVC column with 3.7mm thickness was increased by 11% and PVC with 5.4mm thickness was increased by 20% that of conventional concrete for the height of 300mm.
